The Education Technology Association of New Zealand (EdTechNZ) is a community of education technology firms, education organisations and educationalists, dedicated to the growth of understanding of the benefits of technology in education and the growth of education technology exports from New Zealand.

Education provides the foundation for New Zealand’s economic and social growth.  Our members share a passion for the potential that education technology can bring for New Zealand’s prosperity.

Our key purpose is to drive creative use of technology in education, inside and outside the classroom, to facilitate a world class education system for all New Zealanders and to showcase New Zealand education technology to the world.

EdTechNZ is the voice of education technology in New Zealand, supporting the growth of the sector.  We provide an independent platform for bringing together those with a shared interest in education technology, across industry and government.  The EdTechNZ Executive Council provides leadership and governance of the organisation.  EdTechNZ was launched in 2017, by NZTech.
